Vintage Fruit Cakes

Ain't no joke.

If you already consider fruit cake a joke, the idea of a vintage fruit cake must seem like a real marketer's whopper. Selling last year's fruit cakes? Yes, that's exactly what we're doing. 

In the summer of 2019, Robert Lambert made a small number of his rare citrus fruit cakes to age: a handful each of his classic White Fruit Cake and his dusky Dark Fruit Cake. He cellared them in California. Over the last year the flavor has developed, expanded and become more complex. Like a wine that was fun while young but more serious now that it's aged, these fruit cakes have become a real fruit cake lover's treat. Get yours quick, they sell out every year. Gift boxed.

One year of aging not enough for you? Kept cool and well wrapped in your fridge, a fruitcake will keep for years. How many years? Robert kept one for seven years once and it was delicious.
